Porch Pod delivery safe & monthly service
Introducing the Porch Pod:
This all-new design secures your deliveries from theft, weather, and damage by enclosing it in an attractive container that will fit in with any porch decor! Also, this newest version allows for a number of new features including an integrated video camera and germicidal UV-C lamp, providing additional security and protecting your family from germs.
The new design has a shell constructed of high-density UV-safe plastic - the same sort of plastic that's used to make high-end coolers and play ground equipment - that is both aesthetically pleasing and ultra durable. All electronic components are contained within the lid, keeping them safe from weather and damage.
This new design is large enough to handle almost any package at 20" tall, 18" deep, and 33" wide and features the same bar code scanning technology as the delivery companies use. When a tracking code is scanned into your Porch Pod, we validate it using our proprietary algorithm. If it's a legitimate delivery, our software tells your unit to unlock - all within 5 seconds.
Here's how it's powered: The Porch Pod is powered by plugging in a power supply into your home's outlet (the power supply is similar to a phone charger). The power supply has a 2.5 foot cord, but this can be extended using an ordinary extension cord. If you don't have a power outlet nearby, The Porch Pod can be powered using our optional rechargeable battery pack that provides up to one month of worry free power.
Here's how it's secured: The safe has a ballast area in the base, which allows you to weigh your unit down by using bagged sand, rocks, gym weights, or any other heavy material. Once complete your unit can weigh over 200 lbs, making it highly unlikely to be stolen. If you want even more security, you always have the option to drill through the floor and anchor it directly to your porch with your own hardware.
About our Germicidal UV-C Lamp: This feature helps sanitize your packages using UV light in the UV-C spectrum - a proven technology used in water treatment, hospitals, and sanitation the world over. Of course, this isn't a substitute for good hygiene practices, but may help decrease the transfer of disease.
About our HD Camera: The HD Camera is placed in the lid of your Porch Pod and provides general surveillance footage of the area around your Porch Pod as well as video confirmation of package deliveries or pickups. Videos are securely and privately stored for two weeks in our application, with additional storage available for longer durations.
How it's powered: The Porch Pod is powered by plugging it into a standard household outlet. The supplied transformer has a 3' cable. No power nearby? No problem - add our optional Solar Battery Pack for endless power!
